Design Samples for Client Workshop


This is going to come off rather broad but I am throwing it out there
anyways. I am going into a client workshop series this coming week and
I have prepared a list of core areas for improvement based on both
their current product as well as research documentation provided by
the client. Without too many details, I am presenting the 5 keys to
success as:

1. Search and Retrieval (2000+ products)
2. Layout and Navigation (IA)
3. Ecommerce (|From a design perspective)
4. Content Delivery (Making it related / relevant etc.)

Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).

Graduate Student Living in an Area with limited UI/UX/IxD opportunities or communities

I am a working graduate student at DePaul University. I'm currently enrolled in their Master of Science in HCI online program. I live in Louisiana so UI/UX/IxD communities are almost non existed here. Does anyone have any  suggestions for future students who are interested in Interaction Design but live in an area where there isn't much opportunity or community around?

Hi IxDA'ers!

My client is a major, big-name player in the global design community, and
they're looking for a FREELANCE INFORMATION ARCHITECT for their Seattle
office for an immediate freelance gig.

This IA would need to be able to work approx 40 hour weeks, onsite in
Seattle, for about 4 weeks.

This would be such a major coup to nail this gig---VERY prestigious name to
have on your resume :)

Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

Hi All,

I'm a User Experience Designer. While my primary phone is an iPhone 5, I'm curious to really understand the user behaviors consistent with some android devices (perhaps even extend to windows and blackberry as well). I've been able to test various apps on these devices through my company but I know to truly understand what the user goes through, I should adopt an adroid phone as my primary phone for a month and treat it as real users do.

[PLUG] Special offer: User Interface 14 Conference

[Apologies if you get multiple copies.]

I'm very excited about the User Interface 14 Conference that's coming
up, November 1-3 here in Boston, MA.

We have worked on this program for most of the year, and I have to
say: It's probably the best event we've ever done. (I know, I know --
I've said that before. But this one has really blown me away.)

There's IxDA's own Todd Zaki Warfel giving an amazing workshop on

today technology is so complex it will take 10 000 years to find uses for
it. Singularity... what a joke.

More interactive jobs / less interactive talent ? [back to the ?]

Well, as you can already tell, this brings up a lot of
questions. But here's my take on some parts of it.

I come at this from the point of view of a User
Experience Designer with 12 years' experience (Yes, I
was designing user experiences back before imagemaps.
It was much simpler then) who's been working as a
contractor since '99. My educational background and
early work is usability centered, but over the years
I've moved from doing everything myself to a more
strategic oversight role all the aspects of user
